What Volunteers Say about RCR

View All

“I responded to an ad for a different clinical study. Barb Jones (Research Nurse) steered me to this one, which better suited my situation. I appreciate the time she took to guide me. Liz (Receptionist) was always pleasant in this regard (setting up appt. times for the trials) and her reminder calls were helpful. Barb Jones and I established a very good relationship. She was always professional, but I could talk to her as a friend. I had many questions that were answered to my satisfaction by everyone I encountered. Dr. Davis was especially patient with me. I was impressed by the clean, modern, friendly environment (the quilts are a nice touch). The staff was professional and unrushed. ”

“Your research nurses always took time to explain questions, or just chat a bit. Dr. D. was warm, friendly and caring, and your lab person is excellent–never any bruises! Thanks.”

“Once again I feel a need to write to compliment you on your excellent and caring staff! As you might know, I was in this morning to participate in a follow-up study. I was greeted as if I was a member of the family who hadn’t been home to visit for a while! All the nurses in the center and especially, Chris were excited to see me and find out how I was doing. I can’t tell you how good it makes a person feel when the staff are genuinely interested in a patient’s health and health care and beyond that, a patient’s life. It makes the challenges of the clinical studies you run much easier to handle. I had a wonderful experience participating in the two-year study and today’s visit was no different. So, keep up the good work! I hope to continue to hear about all of Rochester Clinical Research’s successes from your newsletter and other media outlets. Kind regards,”

L.K., Rochester, NY

“Thank you to all the staff. You are special people. Liz is always so pleasant. Sally and Vicki couldn’t have been more encouraging. These girls are keepers! Drs. D. and W. were very professional and answered any questions I had readily. The gal that took my blood was so gracious and practically pain free. Thanks, I’d do it again!”
